Dog performs CPR on trainers


Video of “Poncho” the police dog is going viral after he showed off his CPR skills.

Poncho is a bomb-sniffing dog in Madrid, Spain. After his trainer pretended to pass out, Poncho quickly came to the rescue.

The clever canine officer even knew to check his trainer’s breathing before going back to performing CPR.

Poncho looks clearly relieved after his trainer gets up, thanks to his quick response and talented paws.

Police in Madrid say the four-legged medic won’t be performing CPR on people in the field, but he will be used to demonstrate life-saving techniques for children.
